's the value of debates. >> but look at the way it plays out. romney will say, "yes, i do have a deficit plan. go look on my website. it's there. it's toue." which puts the burden on the audience. i wish they would go to your website because they won't find out the answer at mitt romney's website. >> but then we come to the second part of the process that protects.e you heard in the debates candidates saying, "that's not true. check the record. check the transcript," and an invitation essentiallto go to the fact checkers ato journalism. to the extent that this year we've had a lot of fact checking in national journalism, arsot more than we've had in previous years. and we know now after the first three debates. last time i talked to you it was, it was only a hypothesis, that the people who said they went to the fact checking sites or went to journalism for fact checking on the web, were more likely to accurately be able to portray the candidates' positions and those exchanges in which somebody was alleging deception. romney, his plan largely doesn't add up. obama did not apologize around the
the deficit in half. unfortunately, he doubled it. trillion-dollar deficits for the last four years. >> not true. the annual deficit was already running at $1.2 trillion when obama took office. >> reporter: how is fact checking actually done? on the last presidential debate, we watched one of the oldest fact-checking groups do their job. they are called factcheck.org, established by the university of pennsylvania. four members went to work. eugene kiely used to be a newspaper reporter. he covered congress and government for more than 20 years. he is managing this evening's fact checking. been as important or central in this campaign as the economy has been up until recently, there's some material here that we're going to have to research for first time. >> reporter: as soon as the debate begins, kiely starts to type what both candidates say. he comes across figures or comments that need checking. next, he e-mails colleagues, telling them what to research. then they check the accuracy of the comments. they use official sources like those of the congressional research for candidates'
, 20% across-the-board tax cut. how you are going to achieve any kind of sanity on the debt and deficit without that is beyond my comprehension. >> maybe he doesn't believe that either. >> if they are going to get a deal, it probably is going to be better with barack obama as president that mitt romney. he is so dug into his position -- he does flipper from time to time, but he is so dug into his position that i don't see how he could get an agreement. >> on mitt romney's behalf, doesn't the fact that he does move around work to his advantage? >> you could have a democratic senate, republican house, wishy washy president, and that could be the ingredients of a deal. >> is not that if you don't ever president if the -- don't have a president who was willing to lean on his own party. obama has been willing to do that. >> are we going to have a democratic senate? >> right now it looks increasingly like we will have a democratic senate. once again, republicans have blown it by nominating people like richard mourdock in indiana over richard lugar, nominate taught a get in missouri against if
that the deficit is the top issue for so many in this country, how are they supposed to feel about the fact this candidate says hees not going to balance the budget until the end of the second term. >> our tax reform plan has been validated by harvey rosen out of princeton. even the president's current head of the council economic adviser said in 1986 -- a lot of additional jobs, so if you you add up the growth, we think $7 million worth of jobs, plus what we can save by reforming the tax code, it's fully possible. now, you mentioned defense spending. we're going to ramp it up, but do it at the same time the spending on overseas operations is going down. he wants to capture what he spent on afghanistan to help the military rest and reconstitute after ten years of welfare. >> it seems unfair when you all do it, too, those wars are already slated to end and they were paid for with borrowed money. when that isn't being spent, it's not saved for you too to do something else with. >> spending on defense, okay, the top line, if you're including those top line overseas expend we're going to be spe
, the excess of wall street, our state was faced with a $42 billion budget deficit. over the last four years, the legislature and two governors have chipped away at this deficit from 42 to 26 to $19 billion, and now we're almost to the end of it. and all parts of public service, especially public education, have been hit very, very hard. but it's not just k-12. it's all three segments of the higher education system, it's the safety net for people, most in need. we've completely eliminated dental care and dental assistance for low income adults, for example. now, if prop 30 fails, or if prop 38 gets more votes than prop 30, what will happen is very clear. there will be almost $6 billion worth of automatic cuts to k-12 education. higher education, other public services. and the money that arun talks about, under prop 38, will not even kick in, until after the two to three weeks of the school year have already been lopped off this particular academic year. and in addition, the state budget deficit will continue to linger at a number between $3 billion and $5 billion. proposition 30 gives califo
, create millions of jobs, and cut the deficit. voters understand their big ideas and they like them, but undecided voters aren't sure which guy can turn promises into economic reality. i've got two of the best political minds in the country to break this down for us. candy crowley our chief political correspondent, host of "state of the union with candy crowley" and mark preston, cnn's political director. candy, let's start with you. from the very first primary which you covered to the last hour of voting, the economy has been and will be issue number one. is there anything either candidate can really say or do in the next few days to sway voters who are still not convinced? >> i don't know that even if they could, they have anything left to say or do to convince these voters. you know as well as i do, we're going to get one more jobs report and we're also going to get the report for how the economy, the gdp, how the economy did in the third quarter, so, you know, it's possible that they will have some talking points around that but at this point in a campaign, they don't want to sa
% of americans. his company shipped jobs overseas. >> higher deficits, chronic unemployment, a president who admits he can't work with congress. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> but he says he's had only four years. that's all mitt romney needed. he turned massachusetts around. turned the deficit into a rainy kay -- day fund. >> and they are crisscrossing the nation, attracting huge crowds in one or the other of eight key battleground states in search of a break out message. >> there is no more serious message in the presidential campaign than who can you trust? trust matters. who is going to look out for you? and here's the thing. nevada, you know me by now. you know i say what i mean. and i mean what i say. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new, bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. gwen: and that's just what you can see. the campaign is coming down to science -- numbers-crunching, door-knocking,

about what to do with budget deficits, and properly so. social security has not been a drain on the deficits, but there is a lot of misinformation about it. a lot of proposals floating around about privatizing so that people, especially younger people, into the market instead of having a government social safety net. what about social security that covers not only the elderly, but also those with dependent children can also security as well? putting money into private accounts to be invested by people, that is not going to be helpful to the vast majority of people. knowing where people stand on social security is very important. i want to raise an issue related to the courts. lilly ledbetter was such an explicit example of how courts can matter. and there are projections. it is hard to know what the tenure will be of the nine justices there are on the court right now. many predict that over time and in the next several years, there'll be one, two, or perhaps more vacancies on the supreme court. every vacancy makes a difference, especially given so many 5-4 decisions. who is i
to turn us together but he divided. he promised to cut the deficit in half, he doubled it. how about his budget? it failed to win a single vote either republican or democrat in either house of the congress. he said he would reform medicare and social security and save them from pending insolvency but he shrunk from proposing any solution at all. where are the jobs? where are the 9 million more jobs his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, canada, in countries that have made themselves more attractive while obama's policies have made it less attractive here. his campaign tries to minimize the failures and to make this election about small shiny objects. it matters more than that. it matters to your family and the senior who needs an appointment met by a receptionist saying medicare isn't taking any patients i. it matters to the man in wisconsin i spoke with a few days ago and he used to have a job at there are 25 an hour with benefits and now has one at $8 an hour without benefits. it matters to the college student with $20,000 of student debt who now learns she'l
to point out the same people who are concerned about the deficit and the impact on our children infrastructure is every bit as important. if we don't bring it up to speed it will hurt. >> john, do you think that building better school is going to change the education of our students. isn't it tougher standard and more competition. >> not one iota. it is a desperate act of the administration that ismenting to be perceived as doing 100,000 new teachers will not make investment rise . salary takers from the federal government can train jobs for the put future is laughable. best way to do that is are duce the burden. >> mark, is this another stimulus plan that is going to work the same way the last one did? >> i think the last one was ineffective because members of the congress decileded to block it and we spend little and we needed to spend two or three times the amount. it is 287 billion and we should have spent triple that and we have a 14.8 trillion. halfwent to loans and aid to bail out wall street. >> and so why are we going to spend money on jobs? >> we also have a 16.2 trill

massive budget deficits. in fact, my first couple years we had half billion dollar budget deficits we were trying to eliminate from our budget. the thought of not only bringing back 30 million that we lost a couple years ago, it's only a small amount compared to what we have had to cut the last couple years and i think everyone has seen the impact of not having enough money for muni, having to close down services vital to our city, not having money to build affordable housing for our police officers, our fire fighters, our nurses, our public health system, i think we all see the benefit of that. >> starchild, you made a comment earlier that you agreed with the supervisor with the exception of the registration fee for all the businesses. is that the only issue that you disagree with or are there other issues that you disagree with? >> that's the only issue. the issue is that we shouldn't be transferring more money from the people of san francisco to the government of san francisco. government has grown so much in recent years and now we're in the middle of an economic downturn when
